ITIL® Service Capability - Service Offerings and Agreements (ITIL® SOA) Course Overview
This ITIL® Service Offerings and Agreements course provides a comprehensive overview of practices for the Service Design and Service Strategy areas of the lifecycle and prepares you to take the Service Offerings and Agreements exam, leading to the ITIL® SOA certification.
ITIL® Service Offerings and Agreements is one of the nine ITIL® Intermediate courses which can be mixed and matched to gain the credits needed for the , and one of the four courses which make up the Service Capability Stream. Service Offerings and Agreements concerns practices for portfolio, service level, catalogue, demand, supplier, and financial management.
This Service Offerings and Agreements course covers a wide range of areas in relation to service offerings, from service catalogue management to supplier management and financial management. Touching first on service portfolio management, the course explains the scope and value of this practice, its constituent processes, and its symbiotic relationship with service catalogue management, on which the course subsequently expands. After covering the different types of service catalogue and suggesting when they might be used, the course then explains the role of service level management and considers the importance of service level agreements, either service-based, customer-based, or multi-level.
Delegates will also gain an understanding of demand management, including how to create and analyse user profiles and patterns of business activity, and prepare for situations in which demand exceeds capacity. The course also looks at the roles of supplier management and business relationship management, examining the role of service agreements and relationships with both suppliers and consumers. In addition, delegates will learn about financial management within the lifecycle of a service, learning how to create business cases, assess ROIs, and model various funding alternatives. The course will close with an explanation of the key roles and responsibilities involved in Service Offerings and Agreements, as well as the technological considerations that SOA covers.
By providing a comprehensive guide to the processes of Service Design and Service Strategy, ITIL® Service Offerings and Agreements will be particularly beneficial to anybody involved in activities during these stages.
